Master Gardener Classes Canceled

With the cancellations of group meetings and events across the nation, I’ve decided to cancel all Master Gardener classes next week.  This includes Monday nights class and the workshop on Saturday.  I would much rather be cautious than risk someone getting sick and we can always make up classes later in Spring.  When we make up classes, they will more than likely be on Monday nights also, and that one Saturday class will be on another Saturday later in Spring.  The locations may move, but we can always adapt to whatever life throws us.

If you have any questions, feel free to email or call.

On Tuesday, 7 January 2020, Wilson County Master Gardeners will hold our annual chili cook-off.  Can our reigning champion be unseated? If you attended last year’s chili cook-off, you know it won’t be easy. 

If you have a good recipe and you think you have what it takes to tempt the sophisticated taste buds of our members, then don your apron, get to cutting and whip up a batch for our January meeting. Make a crock-pot full, enough for everyone to get a  good taste. Also, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] if you plan to bring chili.  This year we are accepting eight chili entries. Here is the direct link to the sign-up form:

https://wilsoncountymg.org/events-classes/chili-cookoff-sign-up-form/

This form helps us keep up with how many plan to participate in the cook-off as well as know what other food items we still need.

CHILI-3And if you’re not making chili, maybe you can help by bringing one of the following items: grated cheese, sour cream, cornbread, crackers or corn chips, drinks or a dessert. If you can provide any of these items, please complete this online [ Sign-Up Form ] as soon as possible so that we’ll know what’s coming and what’s lacking.
